Yummy joy of the moment ~ Herb Butter! 
(Or in this case, herb margarine). 

Normally, I shy away from adding butter or margarine to my food preferring to avoid the extra fats and fillers. However, some restaurants I recently visited lured me away from my usual habit by adding the savory goodness of herbs to their soft butter.  
Slather on a warm roll and it is heaven on earth! 

The other night, John and I were about to sit down to dinner when I noticed the margarine tub was getting rather low and looking icky.
Solution? Try making my own herb butter!

Not only did it turn out well, but since I was using the margarine remains I didn't have to wash an extra dish. Simply tossed the tub out after the mixing was done. 

Here is what I did: 
Generously sprinkle Herbs Provence.
Slightly less generously sprinkle Parsley.
Pinch a bit of Sage.
Stir in with a knife.
Scoop into a pretty bowl.
